UK comedian Josh Widdicombe coming to Dubai

And he’ll be joined by two other comedians at Dubai Opera

UK comedian Josh Widdicombe coming to Dubai

Off the back of Dubai Opera hosting its comedy gala night with UK comic Alan Davies last weekend, the venue has announced that UK comedian Josh Widdicombe will be coming to Dubai for a one-night performance later this year.

Known for his co-hosting and sketch material for the UK’s BAFTA award-winning comedy show The Last Leg, Widdicombe will be coming to town on Friday September 13.

Bringing a few laughs to Dubai, the comic, from the UK’s West Country, is also a regular on the BBC’s Live at The Apollo, Have I Got News For You and A League of Their Own – the sports comedy panel show where he’s frequently used as a metaphorical punching bag.

Joining Widdicombe will be Welsh comic Lloyd Langford, Maisie Adam (regularly on 8 Out Of 10 Cats), while Ed Gamble (Mock The Week) will be hosting the evening.

Tickets are now on sale at, priced at Dhs150 and there’s 20 percent discount on VIP and platinum tickets until Tuesday July 2.

Don’t miss another brilliant night of comedy at the opera house – and grab yourself a ticket to the incredible Music in the Studio while you’re at it.

In the meantime, if you’re heading to the final night of this month’s The Laughter Factory tour, then you could get yourself 20 percent off drinks and nibbles at McGettigan’s JBR afterwards.
